Anyone familiar with this?

The Berkeley gig in 86 has a tune called "that's alright mama" Is this the Elvis tune? Setlist program says it was only the second (and last time played) Based don placement in the set it appears Jer has vocals.

Also, setlist program lists a tune called "My baby left me" in set one but does not show up here.

Just curious if anyone has the answer.

I couldn't say with any certainty but I would think that it would indeed be the Elvis tune. Just from it being a J.G staple or at least a semi often played tune.

http://www.last.fm/music/Jerry+Garcia There is an EXCELLENT version of this tune on here from Live at the Keystone.

That's All Right, Mama

Lyrics: Arthur 'Big Boy' Crudup
Music: Arthur 'Big Boy' Crudup

This was played once by the Grateful Dead in 1973 and once in 1986. It was also played frequently by Jerry with Merl Saunders and with the Jerry Garcia Band.

The lyrics below are from the Grateful Dead's 1973 version.

My Mama told me, Papa done told me too
That gal you're foolin' with, she ain't no good for you
But that's all right, that's all right
That's all right now Mama, anyway you do

One and one is two, two and two is four
Don't leave me baby when you walk [out the door] (note 1)
That's all right, that's all right
That's all right now Mama, anyway you do

That's all right Mama, that's all right with you
That's all right Mama, anyway you do
But that's all right, that's all right
That's all right Mama, anyway you do

My Mama told me, Papa done told me too
That gal you're foolin' with, she ain't no good for you
But that's all right, that's all right
That's all right now Mama, anyway you do

Right now Mama, anyway you do
